New Funding Incentive Program

Governor’s Executive Order Forty-Nine provides a total of $400,000 annually in funding for Registered Apprenticeship (RA) programs for public and private sector occupations in which there have not traditionally been apprentices. Specifically, the funds available under Governor’s Executive Order 49 are intended to increase the number of RA programs within the public sector and in key private sector industries (such as Information Technology, Cyber Security, and Professional and Business Services) that have not traditionally sponsored registered apprentices. RA program funding decisions will be made by the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry (VDOLI), in collaboration with the Department of Human Resources Management (DHRM), as appropriate.

The Virginia Registered Apprenticeship Related Instruction Incentive Program (ARIIP) will be administered by the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry’s Registered Apprenticeship Division (DOLI).  DOLI may reimburse the sponsor/employer and state agency, up to a maximum of $1,000 annually, per apprentice, for a maximum of 10 apprentices per sponsor.  Many registered apprenticeships are longer than a year in duration and reimbursement may be sought for multiple years.  Reimbursement is not guaranteed, and is subject to available funding on a first-come, first-served annual basis after successful completion of coursework.

A representative (sponsor/employer/state agency) of an approved Registered Apprenticeship Program will find the Registered Apprenticeship Related Instruction Incentive Guidelines and application at For more information on this incentive program to support employers in signing up registered apprenticeships, contact Kathleen Eddington at (804) 786-2382, or
